single round missing. this is the gun that killed stone. wolfe: you pull the trigger? he paid me to. he said it wouldn't come back to me. who paid you? jerry blackburn? no, matthew. turn around. turn around! come on. (handcuffs clicking) let's go. ♪ so you're saying that your best friend had you shoot him in the head? frankly, i thought you'd have a more authentic story than that, raj. it's the truth. and all that talk about not wanting the money-- that was a lie. it's funny how naive you can be at 20. i thought money was evil. i got older, i saw matt's life, his mansion, his private jet-- i wanted that, too.
i wanted my money. you think i'm still clomping around in birkenstocks going to sweat lodges? i want my share! you gave it up... when you walked out on me and the business we started. yeah, that's right-- our business. i deserve the billions just as much as you do. tv on. weatherman: ...another gorgeous sunny afternoon... shower on. (shower running) stereo on! (music blasting) what the hell are you doing? you think you can drown me out? if you want the money so bad... then earn it. earn it how? kill me. complicated way to commit suicide. i thought it was the cancer talking. then he showed me the prototype for the pw-ten. he was serious. i designed it myself. you want me to kill you with this? you're out of your mind. do you want the money or not?
(beeping) (gunshot) matt planned everything. so he had you hack into heidi taylor's phone... to frame an innocent girl in your place? matt said she wouldn't be, said there was a reason to do it that way. and he didn't share that reason with you. no. he said it was the only way to save tim's life. his dead brother? it didn't make any sense; i didn't argue. his plan for me was clear. and the inheritance was a payment for killing him. he had me change the will the same day. have a seat, please. so if stone's dying of cancer, why would he go to all the trouble to kill himself? 'cause he's sending a message. he could've done that online,
he could've had a press conference... he would've had no credibility. that's why he selected heidi taylor. and again, why heidi taylor? it could've been anyone. he knew it was the last place blackburn would have looked. you have got to be kidding me. so you're saying that someone's trying to pin the murder on me? just like a power-crat, trying to blame the working class. we actually think he was trying to draw attention to you for a different reason. did he ever give you anything? oh, you mean when he came down here and we shared a hookah? look, i have been e-mailing that douche for over a year now, and he only just sent me a "dear insert-name-here." boa vista: can we see that e-mail? it wasn't electronic. it was... it was snail mail-- one of those form letters. do you still have it? wolfe: "and thank you again for taking the time to share your concerns. "we look forward to hearing from you again. sincerely-- mathew stone, ceo." it certainly sounds like a form letter. yeah. you know, calleigh, the logo on this
is in ink, it's raised... i think it's magnetic stripping. i think you've been reading too many spy books. i'm not kidding; take a look. it's possible. credit card companies use magnetic stripping to store personal information. maybe matthew embedded information on this for us to find. okay, here we go. you were right. "2:30, overwatch point, pw-ten, 10,000 units"" calleigh, those are the details of a weapons sale. overwatch point is the headquarters of a private military contractor. those guns weren't just prototypes. jerry blackburn lied. he's been mass producing faulty weapons. ryan, this deal's going down now. we got to go. let's go. (indistinct voice over phone) blackburn.

yeah, let me call you back. is there a problem? want to get out of the car, please? this transaction has been cancelled. on what grounds? on the grounds you're selling defective weapons. the atf approved our designs... the atf has revoked your license. we let them know you falsified test results of the prototypes. you have no proof of that. matthew stone pointed us in the right direction. matthew... wanted the impossible. the perfect gun-- there is no such thing. i'm not gonna let you sell those weapons, jerry. they're not ready. do you realize how leveraged we are on this thing?
